What is a Loss Prevention Officer?

A Loss Prevention Officer (LPO) is a licensed security guard who is generally undercover in plain clothes, or as we like to call a “Covert Operator”. Loss Prevention Officers can be in a full security uniform and fill the role of a general security guard as well, however the most effective way to identify, prevent & control people from stealing from your business is to implement a “Covert Operator” with an exclusive role as a Loss Prevention Officer. Loss prevention officers can conduct surveillance operations undercover, monitor CCTV and manage investigations with police to press charges against the criminals.

Theft Problems

All businesses experience the threat of people stealing from their company. Without the correct loss prevention processes in place, its hard to get accurate statistics on the loss of stock or money. Generally stock gets written off as damaged goods, money variances get balanced with incorrect data. If you cant work out how and why the stock or money is going missing then you cant fix the problem.

It could be customers stealing products off the shelf, staff stealing from the company or organised crime by internal staff or outsiders. When you have an internal staff member stealing from you, it rings alarm bells with what else they are doing. Are they leaking information to your competitors? Is there organised crime and outsiders involved with your staff?

When people steal from your business it has serious effect on your profit margins at the end of the year and causes a list of other operational issues that never get fixed.

Theft Solutions

Loss Prevention Officers roles are to identify potential security risks for businesses where they are most vulnerable to theft from customers or their own staff. It is then the Loss Prevention Officers job to find solutions to prevent theft and create awareness to your staff so they can work as a team. Loss prevention officers can create a compliance structure & implementing strategies in the policies & procedures to manage the shrinkage. Once our loss prevention officers have detected a crime they will then attempt to retain the items and conduct an investigation involving the police. Our reporting system will allow us to analyse information and provide resolutions to improve the processes which result in less shrinkage and overall higher profit margins.

NFC Check Points


We ensure our security guards are checking specific areas by placing NFC check points in multiple locations on site. This will show Date/Time stamp when they scan the check point.


Site Map & Instructions


Our security software sends our guards specific instructions, maps & images of what needs attention to detail when securing your site. This eliminates any room for error or complacency.

We can provide detailed activity reports of every security check we perform and any findings. This is suitable when security is onsite for a long time to ensure they are performing regular security checks.


Visitor Registration


If you require our security officers to record people and vehicles coming on or off site our technology allows us to quickly & efficiently record information which you can view instantly online. Reduce security threats and screen against unwanted visitors by scheduling visitors, visitor groups or setting parameters to follow.
